Ad Analysis

McDonald’s gave their ad a more kid friendly appearance by making the burger look like a piece of candy. This ad for McDonald’s is used to get people to buy more Happy Meals.  When small children see the ad they think of candy at first, but when you bring the McDonald’s colors into play they start to want McDonald’s as well.  Usually when the child wants McDonald’s the parents may subconsciously decide that they also would like to eat McDonald’s, so they are more or less doubling their profit.  When looking at the “candy” burger it almost looks more neatly made and the wrapper makes it look bigger than what it really is.  However because you see a more attractive burger on the advertisement you tend to not think about what the burger really looks like when you actually get the real burger.

 

 

A sense of place

People’s possessions can say a lot about how they really are deep inside.  For example people who’s most loved possession is a “Jesus piece” would probably be a really religious and calm person.  While a person with a possession of a “lucky coin” would probably be more superstitious and lively.  I for one agree with the words Joan Khon, If I were to lose a possession of mine that I felt was very important I would be very distraught and upset.  I’m not sure if this is healthy because it’s almost like having your possessions dictate your mood. The picture of the room below appeals to me.  It’s very small and simple but everything is close and its very compact. Based of off the rooms feature I can tell that the person living here is probably a gamer and active.the-block2
